I have sein some great vw's with stretched tires that looks great, i had heard they started doin that to decrease tire squirm but id think more rubber on the pavement would be better.

So you want the least amount of rubber and the widest, and thus heaviest, wheel you can fit under there just for looks...

I get it...

you got it! its all about the application
my drag car has the lightest wheels available (15"X11")with a 26"X12"X15" drag slicks mounted on it in the rear, 15"X3" skinnies up front..
the customers road race car has a wide body to get the car as low as possible and it has 10" goodyear slicks on some super light ccw's 16"X10"

BTW, the red seven sports work meister's, they are a lightweight wheel considering how wide they are.. its not like a 22" wheel off an escalade

get it now?

Sounds good to me, but alot of the dipshits running around within the trend will be quick to insult another car not following suit. It's been said many times before do what you will to your car, but don't try to push your style on others as being the right way to do things.

This is, bar none, the cleanest, best looking, raddest fist gen in the universe!

/thread.

Actually would look cool with some flares and those trippy fender mirrors though, kinda like a 240z!

Everyone has the constitutional right to make their car impractical and grossly stupid, but I have the right to tell you that your brain is f** up, and to not give you any respect.

Shit is shit no matter what you call it.
